Unashamed: Musings of a Fat, Black Muslim by Leah Vernon


This book is refreshingly raw. Vernon writes in extensive detail about the experiences of growing up and living life as fat, Black, and Muslim. She divulges her inner anti-fat self-hate even as she finds success as a model and social media influencer. She walks the reader through the nuances and details of her divorce and how she picked herself back up in the age of internet dating. This book is comprehensive - and you're left with the unabashed determination and self-manufactured confidence that propels Vernon forward through the difficulties of life.
